On February 25, 2024, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) hosted the final competition for the Hult Prize, a significant event in social entrepreneurship and youth empowerment. Intended as a preliminary competition for the 2024 Hult Prize global contest, it pledged to provide innovative solutions for universal concerns. Over a million students from over 120 countries were motivated to become social entrepreneurs through this competition, led by the Hult Prize Foundation, a pioneer in social entrepreneurship. They offered a USD 1 million prize.
 
The Hult Prize On-Campus Program, in conjunction with the academic excellence of NCKU students, fostered an innovative and proactive attitude toward problem-solving. In alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the competition sought to expand NCKU's influence and develop a new cohort of enterprising leaders dedicated to promoting constructive social transformation.
 
To prepare participants for success, the Hult Prize at NCKU partnered with Atelier Future to offer mentorship, and professionals in the industry conducted seminars. These workshops aimed to increase participants' readiness for the competition by providing insightful analysis and helpful guidance.

Additionally, the Hult Prize at NCKU collaborates with Bank “SinoPac”, highlighting its joint efforts with NCKU to advance sustainability and have a tangible impact on global sustainability attempts. It reaffirms its commitment to the SDGs by supporting the grand final winner's advancement to further stages.
 
Various creative SDG approaches were displayed due to diverse involvement from countries and disciplines. Every initiative highlighted the participants' ability to contribute to societal change, from environmentally friendly packaging solutions to augmented reality (AR) technologies for the blind.
